Japan earthquake updates : 7.6 temblor traps people in fallen homes

JAPAN, Tokyo :  The Japan Meteorological Agency reports quakes off the coast of Ishikawa and nearby prefectures, one with a preliminary magnitude of 7.6.

The tsunami threat from the shallow temblor that struck central Japan has “largely passed”, a US agency said, after waves 1 metre high hit some areas.

The “major tsunami warning” issued for Ishikawa prefecture was downgraded after thousands ordered to evacuate to higher ground.
